Casio DH-280 Digital Horn
Here is a rare horn indeed. I've never seen any reference to
it on the web. If you know anything about these horns, when and
where they were sold, what ROMS were available, etc., drop me an email to ted (at) tedkeys.com
The DH-280 seems to use the same sound module as the
DH-100/200. The same instruments are available and they all sound
like the DH-100. It has the same transpose, octaves, portamento
features as the DH-100.
Some differences between the DH-280 and the DH-100:
- Obviously the shape is quite different. The speaker is
mounted in the base of the instrument.
- The keys are buttons instead of levers. They play about
the same, though.
- The DH-280 has no MIDI output port.
- The DH-280 has an accompaniment module. It can play
accompaniment to your melody. The insertable ROM module
contains accompaniment patterns to several songs and also
some basic drum rythm patterns. The first song is a
dixieland style accompaniment to "When The Saints Go
Marching In". I don't recognise the other songs.
There are separate volume controls for Melody and
- The DH-280 can be tuned. There are separate tuning
controls for melody and accompaniment. This is good for
when you are playing with ,say, a piano that is not tuned
to concert pitch.
